Thanks to all the photography students who made these images of dogs in all their varied situations.  It is my hope that each person who sees this exhibit will consider the treatment of their own best friends, as well as the welfare of all other dogs.

A word to our guests. We hope you enjoy the many photographs included in this exhibit. It was not the intention of this body of work to be simply a group of cute dog photographs. The students put hours of shooting and darkroom work into this exhibit. We hope you will be intrigued and learn about the beauty and honesty of our most trusted friends.

We leave you with a little humor from Groucho Marx: “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”
